At 60 my personal style is changing. Rather than settling further into a certain look I’m branching out and trying new things. I’m experimenting with styles that have never appealed to me before and am having fun discovering new ways to style old favorites.
Everywhere I look, I see inspiring women whose personal style is interesting and noteworthy. Their confidence is evident and they make me long to experiment even more.
Where did this come from? Perhaps it’s being 60 and believing I can choose to be as eccentric as I please and it’s no one’s business but my own. Perhaps it’s boredom with how I have been dressing for the past few years. Whatever the reason it’s fun and if getting dressed isn’t fun, what’s the point?
I’ve been digging deeply into my closet and editing things out that probably should have left years ago. I’m being extremely careful with accessories. I seldom get rid of them because they’re the magic ingredient in many fabulous looks.
I’ve invested in special pieces for many years and have treasures that were passed down to me from my grandmother so their uniqueness makes them timeless. Some accessories get put away for 5-10 years then resurface in new and interesting ways.
Duplicates are being compared and the most worn are being donated.
Classic has always been a part of my personal style. I love to mix it with edgy, feminine, sporty and dramatic looks. Classic jeans, black pants or crisp white shirt are great anchors for many looks. These are staying in my closet and are being organized by color.
As I look back I realize I have never been drawn to traditional dressing. Oh sure, I had a navy blazer I wore with my jeans in the 80’s but I didn’t style it traditionally.
Is there a look you have steadfastly avoided?
When is the last time you edited your wardrobe?
